What kind of yellow wild flower is this?


I took this photo of a beautiful yellow wild flower a couple of years ago and still have not found out what it is. Does anyone know what kind of flower it is?

    Its probably some member of the senecio genus, but the rolled up petals make it look unusual. It could be Shrubby Butterweed?

    Yes, thank you, Eugene. I do photo searches but have to wonder if I discovered a rare species. I may go back to the location some day and get a specimen if it isn't elusive.

    Very similar to the Hall's Mule Ear. Thought it might be in either the Helenium or Rudbeckia family but nope. Photo was taken at Perrot State Park by Trempeauleau, Wisconsin, along the Mississippi.

    Close to the Common Blennosperma. What a pretty flower. Thanks for sharing that, Chuck. I learned something new.
